This event has ended.

Chelsea: Viridian Artists Inc. presents an exhibition of digital imagery by the artist/scientist/ photographer Wally Gilbert, entitled “WORLDS”.

Working with digital photography for over a decade, Gilbert, the artist/scientist, approaches his imagery as he would any scientific investigation, exploring and experimenting in a thousand ways before accepting his findings. He has scrutinized color and form in extreme detail and this time he has become more & more involved with transforming and layering until new patterns emerge, almost of their own accord. Investigating and manipulating, he transforms and combines fragments of photographs into arresting artworks that are simultaneously abstract, multi-faceted and multi-layered.

If you read the paragraph above carefully, you would notice that Gilbert is not only a photographer but also a scientist and if you were to look for him in Wikipedia or Encyclopedia Britannica (https://www.britannica.com/biography/Walter-Gilbert) you would discover that he is a Nobel Prize winning scientist, but here we are interested in his investigation of color, form and imaginative composition – of which he is also a master.

In this recent collection of works, he lets his photographic images talk with one another as he plays with the superimposition of color and form to the extreme. These are not gently explored, but severely, for his explorations have been evolving over the years so that the original images that served to inspire are now transformed into new beings with completely new identities, opening “worlds” never before seen in a camera lens. These “worlds” as he calls this body of work, are what we offer to you to explore as you wish and to see what your imagination brings forth unbidden.
